imogen no chance ata of playing doubles...
i really hope she will seek help, perhaps a therapy wd a sports psych?!...if we fans feel bad pano pa sya di ba? hay!...here's to hoping this slump-o-rama will finally end -- next year ...hehehe...next year na nga siguro ito, *sigh*!...
so frustrating, thank goodness for this thread, we can rant all we want on that note, thanks again tuned_in for our new thread
wow! nasa top 10 ako, yay! busy pa sa lagay na 'to, partida, nyahaha!
about the loss: are we ready to blame adam scott now? it was a tough loss, this is probably rock bottom like what ate imelda said. bawi na lang tayo, that's the only way to move on. anci just has to get over this. i loved her presser, at least she acknowledged her mistakes. i think she should spend the time off regrouping and assembling a new team. back to square one.
pasensya na mga ate, busy ang lola nyo lately pero updated naman ako kahit paano. #2 pala ako sa thread ngayon, a la serena.
^ate clarita!!!! we missed you.. sina RKN and ate eva..saan na kayo?
drama mode pa rin ako..leche. pag naaalala ko.."makirot". we've been through so many of these tough losses over the past year you'd think sanay na sanay na tayo and it shouldn't hurt as much kase we know its coming pero masakit pa rin every time. the loss was heartbreaking because she fought really really hard to come back from a break down, hold matchpoint, just to end up losing. it shows that fighting for something you want soo bad isn't enough. and of course because she's never lost in the first round of a slam. sure k-bond would've been a tough first round opponent for anybody with how she's been playing lately but ana just wasn't there yesterday. her backhand was killing me..kahit sa highlights (lowlights) lang. arrrgggh. i've said my peace about it when i moped about her loss to lucie. (go ana's backhand, ajde!) hehe. retarded. toink. thing is, as weird as it may sound to most people, she has improved a whole lot technically over the course of this slump. her slice backhand can really hurt her opponents now because it gets really low and deep, her drop volleys, that backhand down the line shot etc. we see bits of these flashy, blow your mind, holy cow did-you-see-that winners here and there but nobody really pays attention because she's not doing it consistently and natatalo din naman most of the time. . if she can only get it together and quit overthinking, quit overanalyzing when she's out there, she'd be...she'd be ana - slam champ, never say die, take no prisoners ana. i used to enjoy watching her old matches and it used to make me feel better but now, it just makes me feel sad. she'll be back. i know that pero sad lang.
i agree with what tuned_in said about her needing a full time coach. i think she knows that but i also think that sven's the best fit for her and maybe she thinks so too kaya sya bumalik sa adidas PDP. i don't know. hehe. sana pala naging coach na lang si dragana. i love her..she's awesome. this slump must really be tough for her too kahit di obvious. ajde dragana. haha.
haha. 200 posts between queen anatard and raine18.. 200 yo! TWO HUNDRED!
peeps at ai forums are busy with ana's birthday project. at lot of people suggested yung psychiatrist..haha. then someone brought up who's gonna pay who and it got complicated so iba na lang yung surprise. haha.
wuy, thank you americus, tuned_in and tennis_freak pala. sa updates kahapon and what happened after. haha.
matatapos din ang slump ni Ana.
^!! annoying nga. i didn't get to watch.. didn't miss any of ana's matches sa USO series. stayed up at wee hours to watch livescores and all tapos kahapon i had to work. pffffft.
crazy woman in the stands! hala, that *****. that's really rude to distract players like that..and tiebreak na yun sa 3rd set. tsk tsk.
crazy and annoying! Pero feeling ko I might do the same pag nanood ako ng live na match talaga ni Ana. hahaha!
yeah, right? i usually watch her matches alone and i prefer it that way because omg.. basta. i'm sure you tards can relate. hihi. but i don't think i'll be that crazy woman in the stands though..i'll just shout ajde, fistpump etc. in between points para di ma-distract si ana but i don't know.hehe. madaling sabihin..
^^wahaha i heard about that woman! yung mga ana fans na nanuod ng live gusto na daw syang sakalin
ate clarita! bent!
owp, incase di nyo pa nakita, may video yung interview ni ana. here here. select sept 1 as the date nalang.
lol cris and tuned_in.. mga di nakatiis magbulalas ng mga saloobin.. (kala ko ba new thread) ahahaha.. joke lang.. kaya nga may pex..
medyo naalala ko yang babaitang nakaputi na yan.. nakita ko sya isambes na nagchicheer kay k-bond kala ko kamag-anak.. hahaha..
kamusta naman ang pagtotorture ko sa sarili ko, twice kong pinanood yung presser (full screen pa)... huhuhu,, naiiyak ako kapag naiiyak si ana.. di pa rin ako maka get over.. bad trip.. pero korek, palagay ko kaylangan nya talaga ng matinong bakasyon.. para maranasan nya namang maging normal na tao ulet.. hehehe... oi kulot, leave her alone!
kahit maghintay tayo ng matagal ok lang im all for it basta pagbalik nya sana di na "disbalanced" ang levels ng kanyang fitness, mind and game, at ng magfit na ang mga puzzle para di na "catch 22"..
tard, binabasa ko mga posts sa link ni bent..hilarious!! "groaning"??
i read about 1/4 ng catch-22 dati..typical WW2 novel. di ko tinapos. got sidetracked. haha. yiiii, americus..active na ulit.
